Well, I finally was able to go see Jenny for the first time since she has been awake.
It was an interesting visit.
She knew who I was right away and was very excited to see me.
She asked how I was and about Daniel(my son) in very few words.
She struggles to get words out and has trouble with certain sounds.
I can tell Jenny is the same Jenny. Her personality is still very much the same.
Communicating is difficult because she struggles to get words and sounds out.
Much of everything is two to three words. She was able to tell me very clearly she loved me.
She saw a picture of Daniel and was excited, she would like to see him, so we will arrange that.
While visiting a commercial came on the TV for brownies and she became very excited. She ooooo'd and ahhhhh'd about it.
So, I will have Daniel help make a batch of brownies before we go for our next visit.
She tried to tell her Cheryl ( her mom ) something but Cheryl was not picking up. Jenny got up, walked a slow and limping walk
to her room and came back with a camera. Jenny wanted to take a picture with me.
She is still the very same sweet girl she always was.
She can read short sentences and understand most of them.
She can write very little, and has to use her left hand now as her right arm and hand are partially paralyzed from the brain damage.
However, therapy seems to think with hard work she can get more use of her arm and hand.
Anyway, her main issue now seems to be the fact that she doesn’t understand certain things or have the comprehensive abilities.
I think the best way I can describe how she is, is this. It was like she is an adult and toddler at the same time.
I was very odd to see what she can and cannot do. Encouraging and depressing at the same time.
She must be very frustrated .. ..
Well, that is all I have for now.
And thank you for continued prayers.
Oh, Karissa is doing VERY well. She is enrolled in school and is on the right path in life.
